Moby Dick or The Whale

Chapter 122

Midnight Aloft.—Thunder and Lightning

Herman Melville

The Main-top-sail yard—Tashtego passing new lashings around it.

UM, um, um. Stop that thunder! Plenty too much thunder up here. What’s the use of thunder? Um, um, um. We don’t want thunder; we want rum; give us a glass of rum. Um, um, um!”
